Drinking is a casual pastime that many enjoy weeknights, early mornings, and weekends. Relaxing and having a beer or two with friends after a hard day’s work is a common practice for many who find this social time a way to relax and relieve some of the work pressures we face every day.
Unfortunately, too many people enjoy the pleasures of drinking and then decide to get behind the wheel of a vehicle, and the people who make this choice, turn their vehicles into a dangerous and fatal weapon.
On early Sunday morning, September 16th, five people traveling at high speeds in a red Mercedes coupe, ran a red light in Midtown and collided with a passing airport shuttle carrying passengers to area hotels. Three of the people involved in the accident were listed in critical condition.
Witnesses nearby helped free a van passenger who was pinned under the flipped over shuttle van.
